‘Effie’ brings ‘Love Me Tinder’ show to Jervis Bay area, free tickets for firefighters


Known best for her character Effie, Comedian Mary Coustas is bringing her “big boofy hair, thick woggy accent and irrepressible attitude”, to The Country Club St Georges Basin in NSW, next month.

When Mary heard about the fires in the area, she wanted to do something to help, and has donated 200 tickets to the show to be given to Rural Fire Service brigades from St Georges Basin and surrounding areas.

The one hour show, titled ‘Love Me Tinder’, will take place on Saturday, February 15 from 8.30-9.30pm, with doors opening at 7.30pm.

The club is reaching out to the brigades with details on how they can book. The Spencer Band will play live in the auditorium following the show for the volunteers.

“Essentially Love Me Tinder is about love – finding it and keeping it. And what happens on the other side of the fantasy. It’s about fidelity and commitment. It’s about the animal in all of us and trying to contain it,” said Mary.

The audience can expect some ‘guest appearances’, with Effie’s recently widowed and forever frisky Uncle Vasili dropping in.

“Vasili is an instant hit with the audience. We’ve all met someone like him. And having spent a lot of time in the Jervis Bay, St George area I’m sure the audience will recognise many of his Greek characteristics,” Mary said.

She said the show had been well received everywhere it played.

“Love Me Tinder has been a hit everywhere it plays, and I think it’s proof of how much we all need to laugh and stay connected to the quintessential Australian characters we love so much,” Mary said.

Tickets to Love Me Tinder are $40 and can be booked ONLINE or by phoning the club on 4443 0666.
